On May 5th, 2014, nine of our South Florida Popular Community Bank employees as well as one of our valued Customers participated in the 22nd Annual Junior Achievement Golf and Tennis Tournament. The Tournament was held at one of Arnold Palmer’s Signature Golf Courses – Deering Bay Yacht & Country Club. The event was a success raising a record $200,000 in total! This revenue will not only allow JA to continue serving 30,000 children, but will allow them to offer more programs to additional children. Thanks to the generosity of PCB and many other organizations, more students in our community will learn about financial literacy, workforce readiness, personal economics, global economics, the importance of staying in school, and many more practical messages designed to help prepare tomorrow’s future business and community leaders.
We at Popular Community Bank are very proud of all our employees that participated and gave of their time towards raising money for this great cause. Special congratulations go out to Israel Velasco, Florida Region Executive for winning first place in the Men’s Tennis Single and Cesar Gonzalez, Head Teller from the Brickell Branch in winning second place of the Men’s Tennis Single.
